1. Take D-ribose (Corvalen) (5,000 milligrams – I scoop) 3x’s a day for 3 weeks, then 2 x’s a day. Add to food or drinks.
2. Take the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder (Enzymatic Therapy) or similar multivitamin with B-complex
3. Take 500-1,000 mgs. of acetyl-L-carnitine a day for four to nine months and then as needed
4. Take 200 milligrams of coenzyme Q10 daily for four months (Vitaline, Enzymatic Therapy or Ultraceuticals)
Dr. Teitelbaum recommends that all ME/CFS patients try the first two. If cost is an issue stop there
Otherwise consider adding acetyl-L-carnitine for 3-4 months. Then add Coenzyme Q10 for three to four months. If you do not feel better in six to nine months consider adding magnesium-potassium aspartate and NADH
